I've tied those too and they're really awesome.

I'd say my Philips X1's are definitely one of my all time favorites. For the money the comfort and sound are unmatched. They just do everything right. Plus the detachable cable with the simple 3.5mm plug is just to good. Love em!


Thanks,

My favorite good but not very good headphone is a pair of Fostex T50RP, which I'm slowly modding. It plays everything well no matter what the source, and it never exhausts me. It's also very sturdy, so I don't have to be careful with it and I can relax.

I use my DBI pro 700 a lot, best £30 I ever spent.

Realistic LV10. I now have a halfway decent desktop amp and it gives them the right amount of juice to my liking.

All German Maestro products really, not massively marketed, well priced and sound is what they are all about. They may not be The Best, but they punch well above their price range.

Portapros! Awesome sound for cheap. They fit under my bike helmet, have little enough isolation that I can still be fully aware of my surroundings, and the KTC version has one of only two inline mics I've found that are good enough to use while cycling. I use them for every-day listening on walks and around the house, too...I love my DT770s and TF10s, but the Portapros are probably the headphone I would keep if I could only have one.

My Shure SRH1540

o.O SRH1540 are pretty up-there in terms of price...according to your signature, they're the most expensive ones you own, too.

I don't remember price being a concern for this thread and if we're talking about MSRP then my D600s are the most expensive given they retailed for $550 (thought I only paid $300).  Also my HD650s retail for $500 too.  My 1540s aren't as neutral (or aren't my best) headphones when compared to the HD650s so I think I've satisfied the criteria for this thread.  :beerchug:

Sony V6 with Brainwavz pads (only).

Fair enough, I suppose. There has been a lot of talk about what "not the best" means; it's definitely different for everyone, though, that much is clear. I generally think of sub-$100 headphones.
